Amber Community was founded in 1994 by a small group of people whose lives had been directly impacted by road trauma. These people understood the need for a specialist service where support could be offered to those who, like them, were suffering because of the injury or loss of a loved one on the roads. They joined with professionals working in the area to provide counselling and support.
From this humble beginning in 1994, Amber Community has grown to offer state-wide counselling, support and education services to any Victorian affected by a road incident.
Amber Community now comprises a team of staff and volunteers who provide support and education services to more than 7,000 people annually.
In 2015 Amber Community celebrated its 21st birthday and produced a booklet called 21 years.
In 2022 Road Trauma Support Services Victoria changed its name to Amber Community.
